Here is one that I used to carry a lot because of it's light weight. Never could get into Buck 110's because they felt too handle heavy for me and my hand would cramp with heavy use. This is a Gerber Model 1 (also called the Gunstock model).Very light in weight and very sturdy. I stopped carrying it when I found out the ridiculous prices they were selling for;especially in Japan.
Very interesting I've never seen that before.  :tu:

Here is another one I used to carry a lot.It is actually lighter than it looks. Made by Track Knives for Ithaca Gun Works this one was purchased well used at a flea market for $5 about 30 years ago. Blade was very pitted;probably from having animal blood left on it after being used.Serial # 775 with Ithaca logo(stylized bear paw) Cleaned up nicely and holds a mean edge(convex ground). No nail mark(not needed) and it locks up solid when opened. I still carry it occasionally and it is light enough to comfortably carry in the pocket.

Nice one! I have an Ithaca 20GA Super Single that was my great-uncles that I've been learning how to shoot (most of my life, I've messed with air rifles and .22s). Remington, Beretta, Winchester, and Remington knives seem pretty easy to find, but these Ithaca ones aren't, especially cheap. That's why I mostly collect Camillus and Bear and Sons Remingtons (and I do have a beat up, but original 1930s Remington BSA).

As it is now 2:07am Wednesday in my time zone I figured I would post these before I hit the hay. Although these are not quite what you would(wood?) call every day carry knives they are fun.
First up is an Italian stiletto(non-automatic)that is around 8 inches(20cm)long CLOSED! Nice wood handles(not sure exactly what type of wood);brass bolsters and a handful to carry!
Next is a navaja style knife almost 9 inches(23cm)long with wood scales jigged to look like bone and some fancy acid etched designs on the blade. Top lock is a ratcheting mechanism allowing the blade to lock in a number of positions.
Next is everyone's favorites here: An Opinel No.2 and No.13 together. Sort of like a mother and child pose. :D
And last is a totally wood knife made as a display piece(I guess)for the Catawba Valley Knife Club. No idea where that is;I bought it on e-Bay many years ago.

Though not folding knives these should qualify for Wood Wednesday. Bought them several months apart but the look to have been made by the same person. Nothing special about the knife but the sheath  is made of wood as well! I think I paid about $15 apiece for them only because they were so unique.
